It also happens to be the most successful mobile advertising medium, according to a recently released report by the DMA. Of the 800 U.S. mobile phone users surveyed, 70% said they had responded to a marketing text message whereas just 41% had responded to a survey and 30% to email offers.
In addition, mobile phones are usually turned on and are to hand, which could explain why the average time it takes for a text message to be read is just 15 minutes.
The category that attracted the biggest response by far was for entertainment/music/video products with 44% of users responding. Twenty-one percent responded to food and beverage offers, 15% to beauty products, 12% to consumer electronics and 12% to travel, found the DMA’s research.
